Trailblazing Women Writers: It Matters How We Tell It

Five members of our writer’s group will read from recent works, including two short story collections, two novels, and a nonfiction book. The books will take listeners to Dubai, the world of artificial intelligence, the blurring of boundaries, the comic and the artistic. The diverse group is made of women writers, published and living in the Bay Area, who have helped each other through the writing process, the many drafts, and the marketing.
